Heart-stopping acrobatics that test the limits of strength
Backbone examines the various perceptions of what strength is, where it comes from and how it is measured. This frenetic celebration of human interconnectedness will test the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.
Backbone was the winner of the 2018 Australian Dance Award for Outstanding Achievement and was nominated for three Helpmann Awards in 2017. This is Gravity & Other Myths’ third work and follows the huge international success of their last work, A Simple Space.
‘Circus, as you’ve never seen it before, pushed to its conceptual and cerebral limits. A genre-defying, thought-provoking, visual extravaganza … so intensely beautiful it makes you proud to be human.’ InDaily
‘The excitement of circus at its best combined with the grace and choreographic line of dance’ The Sydney Morning Herald
